MSNBC's 'The Black Agenda' With a White Host

And, oh yeah, the Rev. Al Sharpton. New promos feature Ed Schultz and Sharpton as co-hosts.

There's been lots of commentary about MSNBC's upcoming special on blacks in America, which has a not-so-fitting host in Ed Schultz. Titled A Stronger America: The Black Agenda, the show will air on Sunday at 12 p.m. ET.

Perhaps because of all the flak, MSNBC has released another set of promos featuring the Rev. Al Sharpton as co-host. Mediaite reports that Sharpton was always to be a part of the special, since it airs at the end of his National Action Network convention in New York City.
